Meet Bianca Pozzi

Bianca Pozzi Artist Interview

If Bianca Pozzi’s dreamy art makes you think of children’s books, you’re not alone. She’s thinking of them too, both in style and in purpose. Children’s book art is “Definitely my biggest source of inspiration. I realized that my patterns were always full of characters and I usually like to tell a story with them,” she says. As for her purpose, Pozzi intends for her art to evoke specific feelings: “I like to remember the feeling I had when I was reading a book when I was a child. That's the feeling I want people have when they look at my work, a sense of wonder, beauty, dream and discovery.”

Pozzi lives in Southern Brazil, the country where she was born. She realized she wanted to be an artist when she was in college, studying fashion design. After a stint creating and painting fabric patterns, she started working for herself. She notes that she relies on those print-designs skills every day: “Learning the principles of design was very important for me. I learned about creative process, problem solving, composition and so on.”

Unlike many artists who are starting to do all their creating digitally, Pozzi still uses traditional media, digitizing it later for reproduction. She researches, sketches, and experiments, and then she paints. “It's how I have the most fun making art, and I like that it has its imperfections,” she says.

As her Oopsy Daisy collection indicates, Pozzi’s favorite subject is animals, to which she gives fanciful touches. “It's a bit magical to be able to bring to life little creatures with such human characteristics,” she says, “Wearing clothes, hats and having their own personality at the same time. There are endless possibilities for this!”

Pozzi sees her work as having a very basic importance in the lives of children, much like children’s literature does. “I believe children deserve art that will inspire them, give them confidence and make them dream. They deserve quality. I do have this in mind when I'm creating, and I'm really grateful that I'm able to do this for a living. It’s just part of who I am. I think the world can be so harsh these days, even for small children, so we probably need art more than ever right now. “
